Lone star especially during a time in which these types of inferences and stigmas were so prevalent, provided an insight into the ways we can exist outside our cultural history by choosing to exist only in the present. Choosing to let blood only mean what we let it, and re-working historical contingencies towards our advantage is what lone star is truly about.

In this case, Confusion has put a burden on trucks and trailers which pass through Confusion for the interstate destination. In the end the Dormant Commerce Clause proviso would most likely be used in the court to make the decision on the statue. In the past the Supreme Court decided that the Gibbons versus Ogden would be addressed.

Presentation against Arizona SB1070 Legislative Act, Support our Law Enforcement and Safe Neighborhoods Act. Arizona SB1070, Support our Law Enforcement and Safe Neighborhoods Act was signed into state law by Governor Jan Brewer on April 23, 2010.
